"Fallen – trees and soldiers – Vaia and the Great War" is the name of a hike of about 16 kilometres from Asiago to Forte Interrotto, revealing events of both the Great War and the Storm Vaia of 2018. This itinerary through nature and history features augmented reality and an interactive game.
The Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, in the province of Vicenza, stands out for its endless panoramic views, green meadows and dense forests, villages with high bell towers and rings of mountain peaks all around. It’s the ideal place for a "therapeutic walk", to relax and switch off, regenerating the body and spirit.
The route leading to the Forte Interrotto is clearly signposted and starts from the Camporovere car park, just a few kilometres from Asiago. The first part of the climb is on a narrow asphalt road and offers you postcard-style landscapes but you soon enter the dense forest to walk in the shade of beech, oak, white and red spruce trees.
Try turning off your mobile phone to enjoy every step of your walk in the midst of nature; take a deep breath of the clean air and scents of the woods; remember to look up every now and then, because you could see titmouses and jays, tree pipits and bullfinches.
In just under an hour you will reach the Monte Interrotto, overlooked by the unmistakable massive Fort, much more like a medieval castle than a defensive military base. After visiting the completely restored fortress, you can decide whether to return immediately to the Camporovere car park or continue through the fragrant woods to reach the Mosciagh cemeteries.
Level of difficulty: easy.

Total duration: 2 hours (round trip).

Forte Interrotto: they call it a ‘fort’ but in reality it was a military barracks, with its name supposedly coming from the mountain on which it stands: in Cimbrian ‘Hìnter knotto’, or ‘fortress placed to the north’. The indoor premises may also be visited, and in summer it hosts concerts and cultural events.
